MicroClear MBR/F Sewage Treatment Facilities for 37,000 GPD to 1.5 MGD

MicroClear-MBR/F (Membrane Bioreactor Facility) is the best technology available for medium volume wastewater treatment and reuse applications in the 100,000 GPD to 1.5 MGD range. Looking for something smaller … click here.


Our Decentralized Modular MicroClear MBR Facilities are scalable – allowing treatment infrastructure to be added in stages as capacity requirements grow.

Each phase can be sized to match the current need. The plant will run better and the customer will be able to more closely match capital and operating expense with cash available from the devleopment.

Advanced Technology

MicroClear MBR Facilities uses advanced MBR treatment technology which allow us to meet the requirements in all jurisdictions. The heart of the MicroClear MBR is our MicroClear MBR Membrane. Clean water effluent is ready for most Reuse applications with no further treatment.

Our MBR’s operate close to housing receptors with no Odor or Noise issues.


When fully costed, equipment costs for Modular Facilities is typically less than individually purchased and on site installed equipment.

But even more impact-full,  all the costs around the equipment are less. Civil costs, labor, commissioning, quality are all higher quality and lower cost.

On site work schedule does not depend on weather, and costs are reduced for labor housing, travel etc. All software and instrumentation is fully debugged before shipment, eliminating a lengthy pre-start process.

The schedule for the system to be operational can be guaranteed.

Safety has a big advantage when the work is done in a climate controlled, well organized facility with minimized field work. This all leads to lower total costs for the project, without giving up most of the benefits of on site construction design.

Properly operated, a MicroClear MBR/F Facility will meet or exceed the most stringent nutrient limits and produce the highest quality effluent. The most reliable, the most space efficient and the most cost effective solutions use MicroClearMBR technology.

Technical information

Newterra’s MicroClear MBR technology addresses a wide range of wastewater treatment applications where high quality effluent is required, either to meet regulatory requirements or for reuse. Newterra’s MicroClear MCXL2 membranes ensure high quality and one stop responsibility. MicroClear MBR targets Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD), Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Bacteria, Total Coliforms, Ammonia, Nitrogen, and Phosphorus.


MicroClear MBR also eliminates many pharmaceuticals from the waste stream, which is a growing concern for natural habitats and drinking water. With extensive experience with groundwater remediation, Newterra can bring solutions for emerging contaminant challenges such as PFAS and other compounds that may be present in the system effluent.

Discharge Targets (Typical Base Design)
Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) <5.0 mg/L
Total Suspended Solids (TSS)         <5.0 mg/L
Ammonia-N                                        <1.0 mg/L
Turbidity                                               <0.5 NTU
Total Phosphorus                               <0.1 mg/L
Total Nitrogen                                     <5.0 mg/L

Enhanced Nutrient Removal Design can achieve lower effluent results:
Total Phosphorus                               <0.05 mg/L
Total Nitrogen                                     <3.0 mg/L


The ultimate process configuration is highly dependent on:
  • influent concentrations
  • variability in feed strength and flow
  • desired effluent criteria depending on the ultimate receiver
  • space available
  • budget available
  • climate considerations
  • shipping contraints
  • power available



  • Greenfield & Retrofit Projects
  • Existing Infrastructure Tie-ins
  • Municipal WWTPs
  • Temporary or Interim Sewage Facilities
  • New Residential Developments
  • Hotels, Resorts & Restaurants
  • Off-Grid & Remote Municipal Plants
  • New Commercial Developments
  • LEED® Certified & Green Buildings

Key benefits

Scaleable: Our modular systems can expand as capacity requirements change – and be redeployed at the end of a temporaty project if necessary. Developers can defer infrastructure spending by phasing in sewage treatment capacity in parallel with the phases of a project.
Best in Class Technology: Conservative process design and MicroClear Membranes inside means no surprises with system quality
Reduced On-Site Construction: Modular systems are pre-plumbed, pre-wired and undergo comprehensive testing, allowing for fast installation and minimized onsite work.
Maximum Uptime: Proven, standardized components and strategic redundancy to allow continuous operation – even during maintenance procedures.
Minimal Maintenance: Air scouring and periodic membrane relaxation prevent fouling; chemical cleaning is reduced over hollow fiber membranes.
Operator-Friendly: Our ground-level module removal system is good example of the design considerations we incorporate for easy servicing and improved safety.


  • newtN SCADA: Systems feature sophisticated controls and advanced telemetry for 24/7 monitoring, diagnostics and control from anywhere.
  • MicroClear® UF Membrane Technology: Our advanced flat sheet membrane system is compact, modular and provides exceptional permeate quality.
  • MicroClear Sludge: We offer integrated sludge dewatering; filter cakes are suitable for incineration, landfill or use as fertilizer.
